#22 in nation
for Div I-AA
Sports Network, Teamlink.com and USA Today/
ESPN polls list the Elon football team with a 22nd national
ranking this week after a 20-16 defeat of University of New
Haven Saturday, Oct. 2.
The team moved up from last week’s ranking of 25th
nationally. There are over 120 teams considered in the
Division I-AA ranking.
“Of course, we’re hoping to keep up the [unde
feated] run as long as possible,” said Sports Information
Director David Hibbard. Hibbard admitted that Western
Illinois, who Elon is set to face this weekend, is a tough
team that may pose a threat to the undefeated streak.
Western Illinois beat Elon last year 17-7 and were
ranked 24th in the same national polls on Monday.
“These next four weeks will be the most intense,” he
said, referring to Elon’s future matchups against Samford,
Hofstra, and Charleston Southern.
This weekend’s game is the sixth of the season for
Elon, now ranked at 5-0.
Should Elon defeat Western Illinois, it will have tied
its own record of undefeated games set during the 1986
season. That year in game seven, Gardner-Webb Univer
sity punted a field goal in the last minute to defeat Elon 33-
31 and bringing Elon ’ s record to 6-1.
“That’s the closest we’ve ever been to a play off bid,”
“Our 5-0 is behind us. We’re still practicing like it’s
the beginning of the season, and Coach [A1 Seagraves] is
still running us hard and trying to keep us focused. He
doesn’t want to see us complacent,” said junior quarter
back Derrick Moore.

They bought this land in hopes
of developing high-end housing in

Now, their dream is becom

It took ten long, hard years of
revamping and revising to get this
venture off the ground.
The planned community was
originally supposed to have 150
condominiums modeled after simi
lar structures in the Pinehurst and
Southern Pines communities.
Now the development is ex
pected to put between 45 and 50
condominiums on the property.
Now included with the condomini

The layout today has the

The development has four
